Streetscape Towerama, Power Cables And Tower-Blocks

Thai’s do love to put their power cables overhead, much to the disappointment of those who like those unblemished urban views. Personally I reckon they are quite cool, adds a certain something to an urban landscape. Looking around at other places, I notice for instance that London is fairly free from overhead power cables. Downside is that roads are constantly being dug up which causes delays. So there’s definitely good reasons for running cables overhead.

Not to mention the imposing hotel tower-block in the background !

Anyway, it’s a fairly common street-view here in Thailand, mopeds and baht-buses, street stalls and power cables … oh and shoe shops with the air-con on full and the doors left open, I never will understand that one ! …

I’ve actually merged two portrait photos to make this taller than normal with PTGui Pro. Taken on iPhone 4S Streetscape Towerama PTGui-1w-x-2h-P Streetscape Towerama PTGui-1w-x-2h-P

  1. Hi, Don Charisma, I wanted to comment your last post on charisma, but there was some error on the page, so I am placing it here. It is very important topic for me, because I am Joe, Joe 2 and Joe 3 and I strongly believe that one can not learn to be charismatic. And I would very much like to believe what you saide, so… thanks…

    1. That’s OK, no problem. I think one starts with an idea, then goes and finds the solution. I think also that the answers are generally inside the person, although other people can help to reveal those answers to you. I’d suggest you take a look at written by another blogger. She’s very capable at answering questions, so you might want to contact her.

      The main thing that needs to change is your decision that you want a happier, more charismatic life. Once you’ve decided that you’ll need to figure out how to make it happen for you.

      Warm regards


      1. Thank you very much, Don Charisma, I liked Anupturnedsou (wonderfull anegdote about Marilyn), which I am now following, and as she suggested 🙂 I am going to find your post Do Woman Like Charisma

  2. I agree with Irene, not a fan of the power cables. We live in the older side of our suburb which unfortunately has the power cables, aside from being an eye sore every two or three years the power company goes around butchering any trees that are encroaching on the power lines, it is just ghastly to see all these beautiful trees destroyed like that.

  3. Nice photo. I prefer the cabels are a little less visible, but here in Spain they are also very visible. We get used to see them and maybe ignore them too.
    Thanks for sharing.

    1. Same, my eyes filter them out now … England are quite big on underground cables, but it’s expensive and sometimes impractical, so there are still plenty of overheads …
